Small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy. That’s why during Small Business Week, the Salt Lake Chamber is highlighting local businesses on our Building Utah Podcast. Today we sit down with Drake Busath of Busath Photography.

Drake Busath purchased the business from his father in 1999, after working 18 years alongside his parents. Along the way he was featured four times on the cover of Professional Photography magazine, and earned Masters and Craftsman degrees from PPA.

Drake is a popular speaker at professional photographers conferences and has lectured and judged in Australia, Japan, Korea, Canada, England and in most U.S. states. He teaches workshops semi-annually in Italy.

Busath Studio & Gardens by any measure is considered one of the America’s leading portrait studios.
